Liverpool play host to bitter rivals Manchester United on Saturday, in a match that both will be desperate to win. The game should see Dimitar Berbatov make his long awaited United debut, after his controversial transfer from Tottenham.
In contrast to the embarrassment of striking riches at Old Trafford, Liverpool go into this encounter without the injured Fernando Torres. Rafa Benitez has yet to mastermind a Premier League win over Manchester United and it is six years since Liverpool beat their north-west neighbours at Anfield. The absence of Torres will not make the reversal of these statistics any easier.
Liverpool are [3.2] with the draw at [3.15] and Manchester United the Favourites at [2.64]. It is five seasons since this fixture produced a game of three goals or more and under 2.5 goals can be backed at [1.59]. Click here to place your bet with Betfair
The nouveau riche travel to the nouveau richer at the weekend, as Manchester City play host to Chelsea. All eyes will be on Robinho, who shocked the football world when he left Real Madrid for Eastlands, having been liked with a transfer to Chelsea all summer.
Also looking to show Chelsea what they are missing will be Shaun Wright Phillips, having rejoined City after a disappointing few seasons with the Stamford Bridge outfit. Wright Phillips marked his second coming, with two goals in the 3-0 win at Sunderland in the last round of Premier League fixtures, whilst Chelsea lacked inspiration as they struggled to a 1-1 home draw with Spurs.
Manchester City are [4.5] to claim the three points, with the draw [3.6] and Chelsea the favourites at [1.97]. Chelsea have won the last six encounters against their new rivals in the transfer market and can be backed at [3.2] to be winning Half Time/Full Time. Click here to place your bet with Betfair
